Valentine’s Day Bake Sale Success!

February 3, 2014

Exciting news, Crafts for Cause had it’s very first bake sale on February 1st, 2014. This particular bake sale was to raise money to buy blankets for our local homeless centers. We managed to raise way more money than our intended goal.

The very first monetary donation ever!

We had our bake sale at Glen’s Market during the annual I-500 snow mobile race, so I think that had a major impact in our success. Also, our group has some very dedicated members, who were willing to brave the cold for 6 hours and peddle the goodies. Thank you so much to Tim from Glen’s Market for letting us use their space for free. Glen’s is a great place to shop and also a great place to have a bake sale, as ours is living proof!

Thank you Kayla for coming up with our logo (TBA).
Here is a Valentine’s Day spin on our logo.

Melissa, Kayla and I spent the two days before baking and prepping. Luckily, we had about 6 or 7 more people who were willing to make and donate baked goods to such an important cause.

Tasty Little Cakes donated some vanilla cupcakes.
 Shawnna, another talented local baker donated these delicious sugar cookies.
Another close friend, and local photographer who owns MBphotography, offered to take photos of our goodies and make an internet advertisement. Mary, thank you so much for your time and effort!
And here is our table at the end of the day!
My friend Melissa’s family also donated a large portion of our baked goods. They filled our table with chocolate chip cookies, mini breads, and cherry chip cupcakes (my personal favorite). Her mother in law donated some loaves of zucchini walnut bread which disappeared very quickly. Thanks so much for all your time and effort.
This bake sale was definitely worth any stress that was involved. We are very excited to talk to our local homeless centers and find out what blankets we can purchase and donate to them.
None of this could have happened without the help and dedication of all the people involved. Crafts for Cause is only as good as the people who choose to contribute, and we are thankful for such a loving community. I don’t think I can say that enough.
